Bio: We put the punk in country, the Southern in Texas Country and the 8-track tape in your 1982 OldsmoBuick as you drive down a pastoral highway on your way to an Irish Car Bomb hangover, run away hope and a lost love that has become a two pack a-day habit.
"Tell Badcreek’s five members they’re in a Southern rock band, and they won’t grouse much about it. It’s when you classify these Fort Worthians’ music as “Texas Music” that they cringe. Which may seem strange, considering Badcreek’s tuneage rings much more Texan than Southern. Vocalist Eric Waldron’s raw and throaty crooning sounds unmistakably C&W. The same goes for bassist Bobby Nash’s rockabilly bass-walking. Even guitarist Linc Campbell’s grungy picking, despite its rock roots, leans toward countrified. ...[T]his music is not for the wide-eyed. It ultimately saddens. Waldron’s voice is nothing if not aching. Think rainy road-trip music. The only thing keeping Badcreek’s overall sound this side of nihilistic is Campbell’s punkishly upbeat alt-country riffs."
